This is sooo very pretty Doina! :clap: :clap: :clap:
Maybe just a tad more darks for contrast? I don't have enough of an eye yet to properly critique so see what Dennis or others say :)

This lesson arrived today.  I looked at all your pretty roses, well done everyone! Here is my addition to the rose garden:

Because of the time constraints I'm under, I just pick a spot and 'drop in"   I'm glad tonight I droped in to this lesson .   Brice,  both of your paintings show a delightful  sense of creativity..Denise, very well done, Bhruma, outstanding!, Diona, The most obvious thing missing are the bees that would be swarming around your rorses  :2funny: :2funny:
and mary lou, yours also adds to the beauty of the rose garden you collectively  have produced.   they are all beautiful, each different, each unique, each, I believe, will please Dennis in capturing the essence of the lesson.

If you go back thru the post, I think you will find that all of us went thru the same "beat our selves up" Focus on the 'wish i did better"  " I can't seem to get it 'good enough' " phase.  But the loving support of our peers helped us move on into focusing on what we had learned with each lesson and accepting that "perfection" is never as rewarding as 'Growing"  AS I learn to quiet the Critical Voice inside, I get to put my energy into improving and learning.  I find my peers and Dennis are much more accurate in identifying where i can improve  a painting than that Critical Voice I have carried with me for far too long.

I am glad you all are with me on this journey and you ALL are doing VERY VERY WELL! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Regards, brian

Mary Lou, a very nice painting  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Doina, you painting is also good  :clap: :clap: but a little bit too light - as Denise rightly said, it needs a bit more contrast to really make a great improvement O0 Keep it up, you are doing great.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: Brian, Bryce, Dennis and Denise.  :flowers:
Brian, I agree!
Denise, thanks, the wash came out great with that tip from Dennis.  I used dish liquid in the water and had much less streaking....then I forgot that one little patch under the bottom leaf and had thrown away the wash so it is a  slightly different color but I hope not all that noticeable.

Thank you Denise and Dennis for the comments. I'll try to look for more contrast into the leafs and maybe background. For me, the rose color in the class was a bit toooo strong. Indeed, the one I looked for color, is from my garden (of from a picture; is winter now). I'll post it again, soon. Doina

Back from our 3 week vacation in South America and have nervously picked up the paintbrush again at my first attempt at the roses and water drops - definitely one I'd like to redo since the roses aren't as defined as I would have liked. 
Cheers,
Sharon

Nice job Sharon! I like the slightly different colors between the 2 roses and the whites you left on the larger flower.
 
Also, welcome back!

Sacgal,

Hope you had a wonderful vacation.

The roses are really lovely.  You certainly did not lose any of your painting skills while you were away.
